We have had a lovely stay at Crosskeys cottage, enjoying a warm and cosy cottage. Highlights of our week have been Glenarn Gardens in Rhu, the Ardkinglas Gardens and the beautiful village of Luss. Also not to be missed is the climb up Conic Hill, a visit to Inchcailloch island at Balmaha and a walk around the peninsula at Ardmore.
Thanks Alison for your recommendations, nothing disappointed.
